    Best glue for sticking rubber/felt strips back down in e46 coupe?

    The felt/rubber strips that run around the top edges of the door frames on the interior of my e46 coupe have come away from the car and are hanging down. So I tried superglue to glue it back on, but it didn't work at all! Anyone know what type of glue will do this job? It has to stick rubber to rubber. Thought superglue would do that though!

    cheers

    George

    I recently stuck mine on with butyl tape which can be bought from the dealers for under 20. I imagine glue can be very messy.

    The part number if you're interested is 83190153321.

    Thanks mate. Wow you really went to town on that cardboard framework! Looks like some kind of mad max mod! Can't imagine I could be arsed to make all that.. I will bodge it in some way! But the glue held though right? Prob worth it then.

    Thanks Bungle. Is that just double-sided tape then? But very strong? How wide is it?

    thanks
